High School Seniors, Elena P. and Morgan C. participate in FCCLA (Family Career and Community Leaders of America).  For their project this year, they chose to do a children’s book drive, and donated the books to Parents as Teachers.  They gathered 570 gently used and new books, ranging in age from infant/toddler to young middle school-age.  The girls asked PAT to give some of the books to the families in the program, and to keep the rest to be used as part of PAT’s library and books taken to homes during home visits.  After the girls had donated the books, they did a presentation about their experience, as well as advocating for the Parents as Teachers program.

"Be the Reason someone smiles today"

On my office wall there are big letters saying, "Be the reason someone Smiles Today". While working at my desk in early December, a fellow came in and said, "I'm here to give you something instead of getting something from you". He handed me a lovely card with the following hand written note: To SCICAP, Thank you for a new furnace! As a veteran now disabled, this is the first help I've had from anybody. You people do good work! Thank you from an Army veteran." I must tell you my eyes watered up a bit.
